The Red Storm are back in action and back in Manhattan.

NCAA Basketball: St. John at Connecticut David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Some of the oddsmakers had Georgetown as 10.5 point underdogs to St. John’s, but the consensus line has moved to 11.5.

That’s a wild number, in large part that two things are true for this team: 1. the team’s style of play lets opponents back in games, especially when they shoot threes and 2. this year’s team in particular has struggled to build comfortable leads.

Can the Johnnies make a big win happen at the Garden?
